While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don't have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don't know who's actually building it.

Drivers encountered slick, icy and snowy roads Wednesday.

DENVER — Another round of snow led to a mess on Colorado's roads on Wednesday.

The cold front that brought an initial blast of snow Tuesday evening continued to bring snow to the Denver metro area, foothills and mountains into late Wednesday.

Roads across the region were icy, snowy and slick throughout the Wednesday morning commute. The National Weather Service and Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) urged travelers to slow down and use extra caution.

Interstate 70 eastbound was closed between E-470 and the Kansas state line, and I-70 was closed in both directions between Airpark Boulevard and the Kansas state line.

Colorado State Patrol said there was a crash with at least nine commercial vehicles and 12 passenger vehicles on I-70 in the Strasburg area. No injuries were reported. Some fuel was leaking from the trucks, prompting a hazmat team response.

CSP said to expect an extended closure and to avoid the area.

US 36 was also closed in both directions from Airpark Road and the Kansas state line.

I 70 is still shut down for safety reasons. Unknown timeframe when it will reopen. Troopers on scene believe it will take until morning to clear crash. Alternate routes not encouraged in the area because they will still be dangerous due to high winds and slick roads. pic.twitter.com/Z5ZrNv3lvk

— Colorado State Patrol (@CSP_News) January 18, 2023

The southbound lanes of Interstate 25 closed for a second time Wednesday at US 34 in northern Colorado. The lanes re-opened just before 12:45 p.m. after being closed for around two hours.

Traffic Alert! SB I-25 is closed again at Hwy 34. Traffic is able to use the exit ramp to get off at Hwy 34. Please avoid the area if you can. S-25

— CSP Larimer (@CSP_Larimer) January 18, 2023

The following highways are closed due to adverse conditions:

Several metro area traffic agencies were on accident alert Wednesday morning including Thornton and Erie.

CDOT plow crews are in full shift and will be plowing and treating state-maintained roads throughout the storm and afterward as necessary.

Even with plowing, pretreatment and deicing, CDOT said roads are slick, particularly on bridges, overpasses and shady areas. CDOT added it's best to avoid driving during the Wednesday commute and work from home if possible.

If you have to be out, take it slow, keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you, stay well behind plows, do not pass plows and give extra time.

Denver and area counties will plow heavily traveled roads first before moving onto ones that don’t see as much traffic.

The City of Denver has 70 large plows and 36 smaller residential plows. Denver's large plows can drop deicer down to provide traction on the streets. The small plows do not carry deicer.

During the snowstorm through Wednesday, Denver's residential plows will take a single pass down the center of each side street over the course of a 12-hour shift.

CDOT said its crews west of Golden and in southwestern Colorado have been on full snow shift since before the storm as these regions experienced winter weather conditions over the weekend and will remain on snow shift throughout this next storm. All maintenance crews throughout the state were on snow shift after 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Know before you go and check out COtrip.org for the latest road conditions.

Colorado chain and traction laws

The CDOT urged travelers to be aware of chain and traction law codes before heading out on the roadway:

Aaron Gordon Is Making a Strong All-Star Case

The Nuggets wouldn’t be in first place in the West without their do-it-all forward.

When the Nuggets acquired Aaron Gordon from the Magic in March 2021, coach Michael Malone didn’t have a special role in mind for Gordon, the No. 4 pick from the ’14 draft. Gordon wasn’t asked to become the team’s second-leading scorer or told to focus on only his perimeter defense. Instead, the message was simple.

“They just told me to be me,” Gordon says.

Now, nearly two years since the trade, with a roster that’s finally fully intact, Denver is thriving. The Nuggets are first in the West, having gone 18–3 since Dec. 8. After a win over the Timberwolves on Wednesday, the Nuggets have won eight in a row. And Gordon has been integral to their success, averaging 16.5 points and 6.8 rebounds a night while shooting a stellar 58.8% from the floor.

“This is definitely one of the best seasons I’ve seen from AG by far,” sparkplug guard Bones Hyland said recently. “He does the junkyard work for us, and I feel like he doesn’t get a lot of praise. So definitely AG an All-Star for sure.”

Gordon has built an All-Star case this season, as he’s been a two-way demon for a red-hot Denver team. He’s third on the team in scoring despite taking the fifth-most shots. And he’s their most rugged perimeter defender, taking on the opponent’s best scorer on a near-nightly basis.

Offensively, Gordon’s chemistry with Nikola Jokić allows him to find easy bucket after easy bucket. If Jokić has the ball on the elbow and help defenders start creeping toward him, Gordon will dash along the baseline and cut to the hoop for an easy two before the help realizes they’ve lost him. He’s also become a deadly screener, especially when he sets picks for Jokić. Gordon is adept at taking advantage of the bigger bodies that guard Jokić and aren’t as used to navigating screens as guards. He often finds quick twos slipping screens against centers that start to look panicky when he approaches. And good luck putting a smaller body on Gordon, as he’ll immediately bully them into the paint and get in position for an entry pass.

On the other end of the floor, Gordon is typically tasked with slowing down high-powered wings, whether it be Kawhi Leonard one night or LeBron James on another. Not exactly called upon as a perimeter stopper during his Magic days, it’s a role Gordon has embraced with the Nuggets, describing himself as a “piece of the puzzle” to the team’s success. And it’s that willingness to do whatever the team needs, from cutting to setting screens to hounding scorers, that has put Gordon in the All-Star conversation.

“They know I’m a Swiss Army knife; I could do a lot of different things on the court,” Gordon says of his role. “They needed somebody that could be the glue. I can play one through five, and if you need that that night, I could do it.”

The Magic were never quite able to harness Gordon’s talent the way the Nuggets have. Gordon admits his experience in Orlando was frustrating, where the team was in constant upheaval both on and off the court. The Magic never found the right mix of players around Gordon to help him play his best basketball. (They curiously added a lot of forwards to the roster despite having Gordon already on the team.) This year for the Nuggets, Gordon is averaging the second-most points per game of his career despite not being the first, second or maybe even third option on offense.

“There is a culture here,” Gordon says. “In Orlando we were searching for a culture, searching for an identity, and it was tough. We had five different coaches in five years. Two different sets of GMs. Coming into the league, it was hard to figure that out.

“When we was here, we knew what was up. It’s a winning organization. You got an MVP and multiple All-Star–caliber players. Coming here, it was easy to be myself, and go out there and get in where I fit in.”

“What I’m probably most proud of him for is he hasn’t fought it,” Malone said about Gordon in December. “Last season we didn’t have Michael [Porter Jr.] and Jamal [Murray], and we have some talented offensive players back, and Aaron hasn’t fought the touches, the play calls. If I’m not calling his number he’s not pouting; he’s not moaning, ‘I’m not getting enough play calls.’ He’s finding ways to impact the game, rebounding, running, getting big at the rim, posting up; that’s why all those numbers are so high.”

Gordon relishes playing for a team like the Nuggets. He emphasizes that everyone plays the right way, making the right pass for the next guy and feeding off Jokić’s unselfishness. (Gordon says his own motivation is to win a championship for Jokić. “He deserves it.”)

And as far as his individual improvement, Gordon says his game is much more lean than it was in Orlando. He’s better now about picking his spots and knowing when to go to certain moves.

“I still kind of have the same moves,” he says. “I had a lot in my bag but didn’t know when to use it.”

Gordon’s individual success is now also impacting winning like never before. During Denver’s 18–3 stretch, the team has had by far the best offense in the NBA and, perhaps more important, the eighth-best defense, better than the likes of Cleveland, Milwaukee and Golden State since Dec. 8. And while he repeatedly brings up the goal of winning a championship, when pressed directly on the topic, Gordon admits it would mean a lot to him to make the All-Star team after the adjustments he’s made in his career.

He would even be willing to do the one thing people keep bothering him about if it would secure his place.

“If I’m in the All-Star Game, I’ll do the dunk contest,” says Gordon, who competed in the 2016 and ’20 competitions but controversially lost both.

Gordon’s All-Star case shouldn’t have to come down to that, though. If he keeps playing the way he’s been all season—if Gordon keeps being himself—then keeping him out of the All-Star Game will be a harder sell than putting him in.

CNN —

Hundreds of flights were canceled Wednesday at Denver International Airport (DIA) as a winter storm sweeps across the Rocky Mountain region, according to data from FlightAware.

According to the flight tracking site, almost 320 flights bound for or departing from DIA had been canceled as of 7:45 p.m. ET, with almost 700 flights delayed.

Almost 200 of the cancellations were Southwest Airlines flights, FlightAware indicates.

On Tuesday, more than 180 flights to or from the Denver airport were canceled.

In a statement to CNN, a DIA spokesperson said despite the cancellations, airport operations are running smoothly.

“Many airlines decide to preemptively cancel flights within a 24 hour period to maintain regular operations,” the spokesperson said.

Still, the airport advises passengers to check with specific airlines for the most up-to-date information on their flights.

As for US air travel on Thursday, just 60 flights had been preemptively canceled across the country as of 7:45 p.m. ET Wednesday.

Copious snowfall in Denver and beyond

Some 8.6 inches of snow had been recorded at DIA as of 11 a.m. MST, according to the National Weather Service office in Boulder. This is the largest January snowfall total for Denver since 1992, when 14.8 inches of snow was recorded.

Denver was under a winter storm warning until 5 p.m. MST, where snow was forecast to continue to fall through late into the afternoon.

Denver also recorded 0.43” of precipitation on Tuesday; the NWS says the average precipitation for all of January in Denver is 0.38 inches.

The weather created hazardous road conditions and closures, too.

Interstate 70 was closed from near DIA to the Kansas state line in both directions, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

The Colorado State Patrol tweeted from its CSP Limon account that there was a pileup on I-70 involving nine commercial vehicles near Strasburg, about 30 miles east of DIA.

DENVER -- — Jamal Murray hit a go-ahead floater with 55.9 seconds remaining, Nikola Jokic broke Denver’s record for assists on the way to his 14th triple-double of the season, and the Nuggets rallied for a 122-118 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

Jokic finished with 31 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds as he navigated foul trouble. The two-time reigning NBA MVP passed Alex English for the most assists in team history. Jokic has 3,686 career assists in 568 games — English recorded 3,679 over 837 games in a Denver uniform.

Jokic's teammates made sure to appreciate the achievement.

“We clapped a little bit,” said Murray, who finished with 28 points. “That’s a lot of passes. That’s pretty impressive.”

English thought so, too.

“I knew that eventually my all time assist record would be broken. I’m honored to see that it’s 2 time, I mean 3 time MVP of the NBA do it. Congrats big fella,” English posted on his Twitter account.

Never one to dwell too much on individual accolades, Jokic said he appreciated this particular mark.

“When you have a lot of assists, it just shows that you’re a good team player,” said Jokic, whose teammates plan to sign the ball for him. "That’s something I want to be. I want everybody to remember me as a guy who was a really good team player.”

Murray took over down the stretch to help the Western Conference-leading Nuggets win their 15th straight at home.

The Nuggets trailed 118-115 when Murray hit a 3-pointer with 2:05 remaining to tie the game. Then, he nailed a driving floater to give Denver a lead it didn't relinquish.

Bruce Brown finished with 16 points for a Denver team playing the second game of a back-to-back. Nuggets coach Michael Malone remained in the NBA’s health and safety protocol for a second straight game. David Adelman filled in as acting head coach.

“Winning ugly. Winning pretty. Who cares?" Adelman said. “Good team win.”

Adelman compared the combination of Murray and Jokic to a modern-day version of John Stockton and Karl Malone. Given the way Jokic passes, though, it's hard to say who would represent who.

“I don’t think Stockton can score like me,” Murray cracked. “I think we’re very unique, because they try to guard us in so many different ways.”

Jaden McDaniels led seven Minnesota players in double figures with 18 points. The Timberwolves led by 10 early in the second half.

“I’m mad. I’m mad as hell we lost because I played bad,” said Anthony Edwards, who was 7 of 17 from the floor, including 0 for 4 from 3-point range, and finished with 16 points. "I could have helped us, for sure.”
